Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Enter Your Email Address Lloyds Bank (LSE: LLOY) is a FTSE 100 stock that tends to divide opinion. On one hand, there are thousands of investors across the UK who believe Lloyds shares are significantly undervalued. On the other, there are those who see LLOY as a high-risk share.Wondering whether Lloyds is a ‘buy’ or a ‘sell’ right now? Let’s take a look at the bull case and the bear case.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Bull caseAt the core of the investment case for Lloyds is the argument that the bank has turned itself around since the Global Financial Crisis. This is certainly a valid viewpoint, in my opinion.Just look at the bank’s profits – between FY2014 and FY2018, Lloyds’ operating profit climbed from £1,762m to £5,960m. Moreover, the FTSE 100 bank recently passed a stress test by the Bank of England (to determine if it could withstand a 33% decline in home prices over three years) with flying colours.This suggests it’s far more robust today than it was in the past. Additionally, the PPI claims debacle is now finally over. It’s also argued Lloyds has a sound strategy in its goal is to become significantly more digital. I think this point has merit too, as Lloyds is investing a considerable sum of money to deploy innovative new technologies, such as robotics and machine learning in an effort to make banking simpler and easier for customers. I believe it’s on the right track in this regard.Meanwhile, Lloyds bulls argue the stock is cheap and that the dividend yield is attractive. It’s hard to disagree here. Currently, Lloyds trades on an estimated P/E ratio of 7.7 (versus the FTSE 100 median of 16.7) and sports a trailing dividend yield of 5.6%. Looking at those metrics, the stock appears to offer a lot of value right now.Bear caseTurning to the sell case, one of the main arguments of the bears is that Lloyds is highly exposed to the UK economy, which adds uncertainty. This is a fair point. As the UK’s largest mortgage lender, the bank is definitely exposed to economic conditions in the UK. If Brexit was to result in a severe economic contraction, Lloyds’ profitability would almost certainly take a hit.Another issue to consider is the threat of new entrants into the banking space. Right now, digital banks such as Revolut and Monzo are enjoying tremendous growth. According to research from Accenture, UK digital banks will see their combined customer base rise from around 13bn people to 35bn people over the next year.Meanwhile, the world’s largest tech companies are also moving into banking. For example, Apple has Apple Pay, and there are rumours Amazon is shortly to launch a lending service. This threat shouldn’t be ignored. Lloyds can’t afford to be complacent.Buy or sell?Weighing everything up, I personally see Lloyds as a ‘buy.’ Yes, there are risks to the investment case, however, at the current valuation, I’d argue the risks are priced in. Add in the big dividend yield, and you have an attractive risk/reward proposition, in my view.That said, if you buy Lloyds shares, diversification is crucial. You don’t want to be putting all your eggs in one basket. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Construction took them all the way to Omaha. The Frogs were one win away from the College World Series finals, but lost back-to-back games to Coastal Carolina. Instead of mourning the loss, let’s celebrate the tremendous success of last season. The Frogs made their third straight trip to Omaha, with a treasure trove of young talent. They proved that head coach Jim Schlossnagle and his staff earned their pay raise and alleviated any fears of a depleted pitching staff.At first glance, it didn’t look like the Frogs would make a deep tourney run. TCU even lost its alumni game to the old Frogs, after projected ace Rex Hill gave up early runs.TCU lost its official opening game, too, against Loyola Marymount, but righted the ship by ripping off a 7-game win streak, including a sweep of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Classic in Houston.The Frogs lost just three games before beginning Big 12 Conference play, but were unable to dominate in the conference like they had in the past. TCU lost four series against Big 12 opponents and finished with a 16-10 record that left them in third place heading into the conference tournament.There, the Frogs made it to the championship game, where a huge lead against West Virginia was wasted, and the game went into extra innings.That’s when Luken Baker, freshman DH and waking nightmare for opposing pitchers, displayed the first inkling of how vital he’d be all postseason and launched a walk-off championship-winning home run in the bottom of the 10th inning.That moonshot sent the Frogs to the postseason, where they swept the Fort Worth Regional on a rainy June weekend. The College Station Super Regional was next (Baker hit a home run there, too, and Jared Janczak was electric in his Friday start), where TCU knocked off the Aggies for the second consecutive year to go to Omaha.Baker’s emergence was one of many outstanding individual performances this season. Josh Watson, Austen Wade, and Elliott Barzilli hit the ball well, and Janczak and Brian Howard submitted several dominating pitching performances.Howard, in particular, was overwhelming on the mound, especially when the pressure was at its highest. His win against Texas A&M in the clinching game of the College Station Super Regional provided a spark of energy and motivation for his team.The Frogs won their first game at the College World Series, when — you guessed it — Baker hit a bomb in the top of the 9th inning to come back and beat Texas Tech. TCU beat The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers in the second game, too, and sat in the driver’s seat, one win away from the final.They’d stay one win away. The Chanticleers were a team of destiny, bound and determined to knock off the giants of the game on their way to a stunning title, and the Frogs were just one giant on their checklist.This year, the goal isn’t to make it to the College World Series. It’s to win it. The talent is certainly there, with everyone but Brian Trieglaff and Dane Steinhagen set to return.The Frogs will likely begin the season ranked No. 1, or somewhere close to it, and hopefully this will be the year Jim Schlossnagle’s team finishes at No. 1.

The goal was the 17th of her career, tying her with Jill Cook for 10th all-time in TCU Soccer history. Heckendorn ends her career at TCU with 56 career points, good for 5th all time.Hill recorded her second assist of the season and 11th of her career. Djuricek recorded her third career assist on Heckendorn’s goal.The Frogs held the lead for 45 total minutes until Arizona found the equalizer in the 75th minute. Arizona’s Jada Talley’s fed into the box bounced around between defender and attacker until Samantha Falasco punched the ball in past Lund.The Wildcats took the lead only six minutes later. A long shot from Cali Crisler found the back corner of the net, pushing the Wildcats in front to give them the 2-1 victory.“In the second half, we didn’t have it,” Bell said. “We didn’t have the ball much and we defended a lot. They had the momentum for much of the half and it was hard for us to get a hold of it. With that we kind of struggled and weren’t able to get a hold of the ball and build much of an attack.”Even with the loss, Bell remains optimistic about the future of TCU Soccer. The Frogs will return 26 players from this season’s squad.“I think that for us as a program and where we are, it was great for us to get here and score a goal for the first time in program history,” Bell said. “Now we have to figure out how to win the game. We’ve been here for six years and have made the NCAA Tournament each of the last two years. We are going to try and build on that. I told the kids at the end of the game that I’m very proud of them for what they’ve done, especially the senior class and what they’ve done for our program.” Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Linkedin Two students joined harassment and discrimination lawsuit against TCU Robbie Vaglio Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina.

Arguing for social distancing measures in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, the number of reporters authorized to attend the briefings, which usually allow up to a hundred journalists, has been limited to 29.“At a time when the public needs more than ever to be informed, it is unacceptable for the Japanese government to take advantage of the Covid-19 crisis to reduce access to its press conferences,” said Cédric Alviani, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) East Asia bureau head. “Nothing prevents the authorities from using bigger rooms to accommodate all journalists while respecting the social distancing measures.” Whereas one journalist from each of the 19 media outlets with membership to the Cabinet Press Club have been guaranteed access to these press conferences, only 10 non-members -including freelancers and foreign correspondents-, are being granted access after selection from a lottery.Additionally, the government has mandated an approximate limit of three questions per press club member and two per non-member, denied follow-up questions and further requested that club members’ questions be submitted in advance. These measures allow authorities to avoid answering questions touching on subjects they deem sensitive.On April 21st, Mass Media & Information Culture, a network of Japanese media workers, in report denounced attempts from the cabinet of the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to influence coverage of the epidemic and the lack of government transparency on virus-related scientific data, a situation that mirrors the government’s attitude toward topics relating to the Fukushima nuclear disaster.UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression David Kaye has expressed serious concerns about freedom of the press in Japan in 2017 and noted a further erosion in 2019.Japan ranked 66th out of 180 in the 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

ColombiaAmericas Reporters Without Borders calls on the authorities to reinforce the protection they are providing to Pedro Cárdenas, the editor of the magazine La Verdad, after two men hit him and threatened him with a gun on 14 June in Bogotá in an attempt to dissuade him from distributing the latest issue in Tolima, a department west of Bogotá. Attempts have been made to intimidate Cárdenas in the past.“Paramilitary groups may have Cárdenas in their sights after La Verdad named four people who were arrested at the start of June for suspected paramilitary links,” the press freedom organisation said. “This is not the first time he has been seriously threatened after a new issue came out. It is essential that the authorities should step up the protective measures he is receiving. They should also guarantee that La Verdad will be able to continue publishing.”Cárdenas was intercepted by two men on a white motorcycle as he was walking in the capital on 14 June. One of them hit him several times and, with revolver in his hand, told him that La Verdad had better not appear in Tolima. With bruises to the head and body, Cárdenas immediately went to the police Centre for Immediate Attention (CAI), where the person in charge ordered a search for the white motorcycle that was unsuccessful. Cárdenas filed a formal complaint on 16 June.Cárdenas told Reporters Without Borders he felt that the danger to which he was exposed had increased as a result of La Verdad’s latest issue, which named the four suspects arrested at the start of June and questioned the effectiveness of the investigators in charge of the case.The 12 issues of La Verdad that have so far appeared have included reports by Cárdenas on such issues as trafficking in sex slaves, the seizure of land in Tolima by members of the paramilitary United Self-Defence Groups of Colombia (AUC) and links between the AUC and certain local officials.Cárdenas reported to the public prosecutor’s office on 15 April that he just received an anonymous death threat coinciding with the appearance of an issue of the magazine. On 29 May, he reported technical flaws in the protection he was receiving.

As an institution, I find that this is a deeply worrying fact and must promptly receive serious introspection and reflection” Justice Chandrachud said while speaking at Justice Indu Malhotra’s virtual farewell.Justice Chandrachud took the opportunity of Justice Indu Malhotra’s farewell organised by the Supreme Court Young Lawyers Forum to comment on the fact that Supreme Court Bench’s will only have one female judge after Justice Malhotra’s retirement, calling it an ‘important issue’.He added that the reason why Justice Malhotra adorned the Bench, was not because she was a woman, it was not because one of the best women lawyers of her time, it was because she had capacity to become the best Judge of her time, men or women or others.”As an institution whose decision shape and impact lives of everyday Indian, we must do better. We must ensure the diversity of our Country find reflection in the make up of our Court ” he said.Justice Chandrachud further said that Diversity in Judiciary has both intrinsic and instrumental values.Supreme Court Young Lawyers Forum is organising a Virtual Farewell in honour of retiring Supreme Court Judge, Justice Indu Malhotra, today at 4:00 PM. #SupremeCourt #JusticeInduMalhotra pic.twitter.com/DPWbSVtb01— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) March 13, 2021 “Intrinsically having a more diverse Judiciary is an end, a goal in itself and something worth pursuing in its own sake. Instrumentally, having a more diverse judiciary, ensures that diversity of perspectives is fairly considered in decision making process, instills high degree of public confidence in decisions arrived at, and helps us as an Institution to be more attuned to the people we serve” Justice Chandrachud opined.Justice Chandrachud also said “Let me share with you that after being on the Bench for 21 years, you tend to lose a connect with society, and I always found that sitting with a colleague who had an immediate connect, a contact with society, it was very valuable to share ideas with Justice Indu when we were deciding cases. She always gave me a real life picture, sometimes a grim portrayal of liberty of liberty, equality, whether it was in context of consumer protection matter, or women victim of gender violence”Justice Chandrachud said that Justice Indu Malhotra has also spoken powerfully and movingly of struggles she had to endure in rising up the ranks of her profession as a woman. At an even in October, she spoke about how she was discouraged from applying for being Senior Advocate.” She noted how even after being a Supreme Court Judge, she has faced discrimination, in shape of some of her colleagues doubting her competence making it necessary for her to work twice as hard. I can only tell you from bottom of my conscience and with my hand on my soul that I wasn’t one of them.”Justice Chandrachud said he hopes that ” as we celebrate today, Justice Malhotra’s career and accomplishments, we use this opportunity that stories such as hers become more common place and as members of legal fraternity we do our bit to ensure, that it no longer remains as hard as it was for Justice Malhotra for women to climb upper echelons of our profession.”Justice Chandrachud added that “It is a bitter sweet occasion. The sun is setting on a remarkable career of a woman who has broken many glass ceilings & has been exemplar of the manner in which awesome responsibilities of judgeship can be discharged with grit, equanimity, competence and Compassion”He added that “the Constitution says that Justice Indu has to retire tomorrow, but I do believe as her judgement in Navtej showed, that she is truly young in her mind and vibrant in her inner being and soul.” “I’m sure, in discharging her functions with high degree of competence, She has served as a powerful symbol for many women in the profession. Her story has undoubtedly made their dreams more reachable and their struggles more bearable.” Justice Chandrachud said.Justice Chandrachud shared lines from poem that Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, first woman Justice of Human Supreme Court often used to recite a beautiful poem called ‘The Bridge Builder’, about an old man who after crossing the river in a deep canyon decided to stay there and build a bridge, stating that it captures Justice Malhotra’s approach in paving way for others perfectly.He added that “She has played an instrumental role in mentoring younger women in legal profession. A write up in LiveLaw yesterday by her law Clerk tells us what a fantastic mentor she has been.”Talking about the choice of his outfit, Justice Chandrachud said that “Amidst all the blues, the greys, the whites and black outfits in the Court, I thought I should make break with tradition by wearing something more suited to the image of this Association as being the ‘SC Young Lawyers Forum. The reason why I chose this outfit was to remind all of us that age is just one element of statistics that go into determine if you are young or not, and Sister Indu Malhotra really symbolises that.”Justice Indu Malhotra, the first woman Judge to be elevated directly from the Bar and the seventh woman Judge to be appointed at the Supreme Court, is set to retire on March 13, 2021.Appointed as a Supreme Court Judge on April 27, 2018, Justice Malhotra also holds the distinction of being the second woman to ever be designated a Senior Advocate by the Supreme Court.Next Story

A new scheme has been drawn up by Watkin Jones to build student accommodation on a controversial plot in St. Clements.A previous project sparked months of protests from residents, 140 businesses and the University, with objections about a loss of car parking and the impact on an area of conservation near Magdalen college.The original £8m plans were to provide 141 students with accommodation, reducing the number of car parking spaces in the area from 120 to 76. Traders claimed the lack of spaces could seriously damage their business, as shoppers could have nowhere to park for about a year. The scheme was eventually rejected by counsellors.Watkin Jones came back with a new suggestion a year later. As well as reducing the height of buildings, the developers say the new scheme will provide 80 car parking places, six more than the earlier scheme. As St Clement’s car park would have to close for a year of building work, new plans have been drawn up to provide a temporary car park for 65 vehicles off Marston Road. The plans include new public toilets and the landscaping of the riverbank.After a design competition, Manchester based firm Hodder and Jones have drawn up a plan, which features two rows of student flats either side of a pedestrian street, connected by a glass bridge. The idea is to maintain the former street pattern, once occupied by the historic Pensons Gardens, and to enhance views from the flats of the River Cherwell and meadows.Roger Smith, of planning consultants Savills, said, “We consider that this is a much better proposal, which takes account of the conservation area, the amenity of local residents and provides a greater level of temporary parking during the period of construction.”The developers hope that a planning application could be submitted in June, with a view to students moving in by September 2013.Watkin and Jones still intend to appeal against the city council’s decision to reject the earlier scheme.
How Hoosiers Should Handle Problems With Their Dates Of Birth OF First Names In Their Voter RegistrationINDIANAPOLIS (October 18, 2016) – Hoosier voters have contacted the Secretary of State’s office after discovering the date of birth or first name on their voter registration is incorrect. This causes the voter to believe they are not registered because they cannot locate their information on Indianavoters.com.“We ran a report in the statewide voter registration system and found thousands of dates of births and first names were changed,” said Secretary of State Connie Lawson. “These records were changed on paper forms, at the BMV and online. At this time, my office is not sure why these records were changed, but we have evaluated the Statewide Voter Registration System and have found no indication it has been compromised. We believe this may be a case of voter fraud and have turned our findings over to the State Police, who are currently conducting an investigation into alleged voter fraud.”When voters go to find their registration record online at Indianavoters.com, they are required to put in their name, county of residence and date of birth. If the date of birth or name is incorrect, the voter cannot find their registration, leading them to believe they are no longer registered to vote in the upcoming election. The voters who have encountered this issue and have contacted the Secretary of State’s office did vote in the Primary Election.Voters who voted in the Primary Election and can no longer find themselves on Indianavoters.com are encouraged to contact their local county election officials. The county election offices may be able to find a voter’s record if there is an issue with a voter’s date of birth or first name. Since the voter registration deadline has passed, only the county election offices may be able to assist voters to correct information under limited circumstances.Voters who find their date of birth or first name is incorrect on their registration will still be able to vote in the November 8th General Election. Voters who explore entering different dates of birth may discover their record. They would then be able to correct their date of birth for their voting record on Indianavoters.com. The correction will not take place until 30 days after the election, but the voter will be able to vote on November 8th or participate in early voting.All voters are encouraged to vote early to ensure they will not encounter any issues when casting their ballot this year.

HUDSON COUNTY – Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari is issuing a warning to local citizens about a telephone scam that is targeting local residents, particularly senior citizens.The Sheriff’s Office has received complaints from residents who report that someone claiming to be a police deputy has called them and requested money to avoid arrest for Jury Duty violations or other outstanding warrants. These calls first started popping up in Essex, Morris, and Bergen counties and have now spread to Jersey City and Hudson County.Other callers have told residents that they owe back taxes and face arrest if the amount isn’t paid. Phone scammers are asking victims to retrieve money on a money card, which is a prepaid credit card. After initially asking to meet them at a certain location, scammers will then ask them to just give the money card information over the phone.Some have even referred to a captain or other officer to make the call appear legitimate.“I want to make it clear to all Hudson County residents that our office does not make such calls,” said Sheriff Schillari. “Our department is working diligently to find these scam artists who victimize working people and seniors and bring them to justice. We ask all residents to be on alert and let us know if they receive a call like this. People should be extremely careful about sharing any personal information on the telephone with someone whom they do not know.”Anyone with further information about these calls or to report receiving one is asked to contact the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office at (201) 369-4330. ×
